Activision revealed that Goldfinger, one of the most iconic James Bond movies of all time will take the title of being the 5th 007 movie-inspired mission that joins Die Another Day, Moonraker, Licence to Kill and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, in this year’s upcoming 007™ Legends game .

In 007 Legends, the Goldfinger mission finds the best undercover agent early in his career investigating Auric Goldfinger – a gold magnate thought to be behind a recent spike in gold prices, only to discover a larger plot to irradiate the entire Fort Knox gold reserve.

"In order to thwart the plot, Bond takes action to infiltrate Goldfinger’s headquarters with help from a questionable acquaintance – Pussy Galore.  Upon arrival at Fort Knox, 007 is tasked with defusing a nuclear bomb before it detonates, and the only thing standing between Bond and the bomb is Goldfinger’s henchman – Oddjob – and his notoriously deadly hat.  Will Bond be able to defeat Oddjob?  Will Goldfinger’s evil plans succeed?  Check out 007 Legends this autumn to experience some of the biggest moments in Bond history in this unique movie-inspired game."

A first-of-its-kind Bond gaming experience, 007 Legends features an original, overarching storyline that explores the undercover operative’s journey from a newly-minted secret agent to the most beloved, or hated, spy legend there ever was.  By tying together five classic Bond movie-inspired missions, plus a sixth mission based on this year’s highly-anticipated movie Skyfall, which will be available post launch as DLC.

As usual you can expect the usual showcasing of state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons and sleek vehicles, exotic locations, and intense action mixed with quick wit, its certainly sounding great on paper, but only time will tell if this really does live up to the Bond name, I mean lets face it, its never going to be as Goldeneye is it?
